PRE-PAYMENT FOR THE JOURNAL.
We promised to publish a list of pre
payments up to this imme, but we are afraid
that the Monitor has the dead wood on us,
and, consequently, we will wait for a week
or two longer. A large number have come
in and paid up, and they will please accept
our warmest thanks. But there are over a
thousand names on our list that have not
paid yet. We do hope that these will see
the necessity of paying in advance. There
is nothing like advance payment; it saves
to the subscriber and accommodates us.
We are anxious to get down to the advance
paying system, and therefore we urge it so
strongly. Send in your greenbacks:
COMPLETION OF THE PITTSBURGH
AND CONNELLSVILLE RAILROAD.,
The last spike was driven on the Pigs
burgh and Connellsville Railroad, on Mon
day, the 10th inst., at 3:20 o'clock,. r. as.,
in the presence of W. 0. Ilughart, the
President of the road, and a . number of
other parties inkrested, in. the project.
This is the COMliilninatiOlk of a w.orlt, under
take* twiny years ago, that will prove of
greater advantage to Pittsburgh than any
ipproventent made in her behalf since the
eempletion,of, the Pennsylvania Central to
that point. Pittsburgh may well feel ela
ted at the result. She will now, for the
first time, realize what competition can do
for her. We quote the following from the
Pittsburgh Gazette of the llth inst: "Thus,
after the wearisome waiting and watching
through long years, has been consummated
the wedding of the proud Monumental and
Iron cities, and the union cannot but prove
mutually advantageous and happy. Qur
people have in this event 1143;4, to congrat
ulate themselves uton. In it they obtain
a new, abort pathway to the seaboard, over
ithieh will travel a share of the menu
isebired products of our mills and work
shops ; it opens rip to agriculture thousands
of acres of hitherto wild, waste lands, un
locks new treasure boxes of nature richly
Vaided with minerals, and binding in close
communion the thrifty people of Pittsburgh
with their multitudinous interests, to the
prosperous and enterprising Baltimoreans.
In rejoicing over the consutumation, we
must not forget to pay proper tribute,to
the man, who above all others,deserxca the
credit for the completion of thp,soad,....*W.,
0. Hughart, Esq. He h a bred earn
estly, perseveringlT awl persistently for
the accompljahment of a railway union of
Pittsburgh and Baltimore, and now that
his fondest hope has been realized, and his
zealous exertions have been crowned with
actual success, let him receive the large
share of credit due him for the great work."
We most heartily endorse the above com
pliment to Mr. Hughart. His indefatiga
ble exertions brought system and order out
of confusion, shook off the Central Her
cules and accomplished what was almost
universally thought to be impossible. We
are only sorry that he failed in his nego
tiations looking to the control of the Bed
ford and Bridgeport Railroad to Bedford.
If he had succeeded, his road would have
been extended through the entire,sonthern
tier of counties of Pennsylvania, and ,
a few years it would have proven a
very formidable rival of the Central. The
Pittsburgh capitalists were somewhat to
blame for this failure.
The completion of the Bedford and
Bridgeport Railroad will make Huntingdon
the terminus of this great line in Pennsyl
vania. We can scarcely wait until the
day for the consummation of this great
event arrives. The extension of the latter
road to the George Creek coal field will
make this the point for the re-shipment
by canal, of great quantities of coal. There
is a bright day ahead for Huntingdon!

sis.. Gov. Geary's prompt action inserv
ing out writs of quo warranlo against the
railroads, commanding them to show
cause why their charters should not be for
feited for having violated them in raising
the freight on coal, from two to six dollars
per tin, has won the approbation of all
those who love honesty and fair dealing.
A compromise will now, in all probability,
be effected, which will be satisfactory to
both capital and labor.
, .It has been suggested that the Gov
tiftior call an extra session of the Legisla
ture, about the first of June; to take action
upon the various bills prepared, and to be
prepared, looking to the building of an
Alms-House in Bedford county. In such
an event it would be unnecessary to call an
extra session to act upon the Revised
Statutes, as by the middle of September,
at the farthest, the Bedford county Poor
House business could be disposed of, and
the Legislature would be ready for lighter
work. Give us the extra session by all
The Philadelphia Press, some weeks
ago, exposed an institution, claiming to be
a Medical College, located, if we remember
correctly, on Race street, Philadelphia, for
trafficing in diplomas in this country and
in Europe. Since the expose we have not
heard of any action is the premises. Such
infamous conduct, must certainly be in
violation of its charter, and, if this be the
case. the Governor should see that it be
taken away, and the Legislature should
enact a law imposing a heavy penalty for
such dishonorable and disreputable prac
20.. The musical gentleman, who controls
the Monitor, in his last issue, endeavors to
tickle the ears of his Democratic adherents
with a story of an "organ." - This is one
of a thousand strings upon which he harps
and plays so dexterously. We make our
own poor music, friend, and play second
fiddle to nobody, nor do we dance to any
other persons music. Please change your
tune—it's a little fiat.
.The mail trains on the Pennsylva
nia Central have been running very irreg
ularly for the last week or two. Some
wicked person attributes it to the fact that
-the postal cars are so terribly loaded' down
with public documents sent to this district
by our zealous member of Congress. It is
reported to take ten, miatatea, per trip, at
each station, to unload them.
SarThe miiiicarriers, who have hereto
roTe the mails, on their respective
•routes, on horse back, have, within the
last few weeks, been obliged to employ the
farmers along the way, with their farm
horse wagons, to carry our Congressman's
extra documents. Of course they are all
franked. The story circulated that he pays
the postage on them is all , a hoax,

Ds...There is no necessity for anticipat
ing trouble. The world is bad enough
without fretting yourself to death about
imaginary evils. When the $9,000,000
swindle makes its appearance it will be
time enough to cry, "stop thief !" By that

shucks; you will be out of wind.

by far, in this respect.

GENTLEMEN : Your communication has been
before me, and the subject of serious consider
ation, for several weeks.
I had heard of such a letter before I saw it,
or saw the signature to it, and had heard, also
of similar letters which I have not yet seen,
and know not who have signed, through cer
tain newspapers in your county. I scarcely
know, therefore, gentlemen, whether this is
to be regarded as our personal correspondence.
I have not been accustomed to having my let
ters opened, and in a distorted and garbled
form, PUBLISHED, before I received them. It
occurs to me, as it has doubtless occurred to
you, gentlemen. that it would have been deco
rous ii Zan Ens, who, upon rumor or surmise,
have seen fit to undertake to step in between
us, to have waited until they know what com
munication you had made to me, and my res
ponse to it, before they undertook to make
your conduct or mine the subject of public
animadversion. But it was thought, perhaps,
that you might do something, and did not
know or understand what you were doing,
and might need the friendly aid of some dis
interested monitor; or might be induced to
follow and recall a surmised letter to me ; or
that others might be deterred from like acts
of indiscretion ; or, at least, that I might be
intimidated into hesitancy in complying with
your invitation to be an independent candi
date. Waiving, however, all questions of eti
quette or good manners, (of little significance
among mere politicians), let me here at once
relieve this part of the subject of ail difficulty
by saying explicity, in answer to your kind
letter, that I am, and if God shall spare my
life until the day of the next general eleetiou, /
will then be, an independent candidate for the
office of President Judge of the XXIVth Judi
My ninny, at least, to be a candidate, wheth
er on my own 'volition, or the suggestion
or invitation of you, gentlemen, and
others, even without the permission of
some other aspirant and his friends, will not, of
course, be questioned. No one certainly, will
question the right of any other gentleman to
be a candidate on any platform he may choose.
I will say further, in relief of those who kindly
volunteered to be oar monitors or guardians,
that Ido not hold any one of you, gentlemen,
or any one else who has addressed me on this
subject, either in writing or orally, committed
to my support beyond his concientious sense
of duty when he shall come to cast his ballot,
with all the candidates that be in the field be
fore him. And I will here say further, gentle
men, that if 1 be found doing or saying any
thing unjustly to disparage or injure any gen
tleman who may desire to be a candidate, in
order to promote my success, or cane his de
feat, I am willing that you should regard it as
evidence that lam unfit for a high Judicial
office, and unworthy of it, and cast your vote
. against me.
• - Having thus placed myself before the people
as a candidate for the high and responsible
office I now hold, it is due alike to myself and
the public, that I should make, and, I know
you will excuse, a frank statement of the rea
sons which have brought me to this conclu
sion, awl for assuming the attitude I now oc
cupy before the people.
Ity duty to those dependent upon me, will
not permit me to cease from labor at some
thing; and, so long accustomed to looking at
both sides of questions, I feel it would be
awkward for me to go back to the bar, and I
have, besides, a strong distaste for engaging
again in the practice of the law ; while
my long training upon the bench renders my
labors there lighter than in my earlier judicial
life. Besides, I have been, and am, so identi
fied with this Judicial District, that it will not
be thought strange that I am warmly attached
to it. When it was first formed, I was called
to be its first President Judge; and, through
the indulgent partiality and confidence of the
people, I have continued to preside in its
courts ever since. The changes and.. nuinds
cences of over twenty years, have served to
strengthen that attachment. . What I saw will
be readily appreciated, therefore, when I de
clare frankly that there is no field of labor,
wbi,e kmaet. at something, that I would
prefer, although the work in it is onerous to
a degree that no one who has not felt the la
bor and, responsibility involved in the dis
• charge of all the judicial duties in a heavy dis
trict like this, can know or appreciate. I would
still prefer it so to any political office that could
be named or offered me.
I have, at the acme time, gentlemen,
the estimate I place upon the office of Judge,
and particularly in view of the prospective toil
beyond that period of life when years of rest,
should they come, are to be desired, no anx
iety for success that would induce me to seek
or accept the office upon ANY terms. I woald
rather not be a candidate, or a candidate, be
defeated, than descend to the degrading ap
pliances of selfish political partizauism, to af
tain it. I have carried with me from my earli
est manhood a strong impression of the almost
sacred value of the purity and independence of
the Judiciary, as a branch of the government ;
and 1 glory now in the fact, that, while other
departments have often been, through the cor
rupting tendencies of party politics ' justly or
unjustly, brought into reprOrch, the Judiciary
of Vennsylvania has hitherto stood, and still
stands, highabove suspicion. In this earnest,
ly cherished sentiment, I opposed with my pen.
and vote, the call for a convention to amend the
constitution of 1790, and opposed the amend
ments submitted in 1838; which were carried
only by a few hundred votes, and carried,
as 1 have never doubted, by a citizen ofyotir
county, long since deceased, and who after
wards sat with me upon the bench. Upon
the same ground, I voted with a majority
not very much short, of two thousand
of the voters of this Judicial District,
against the amendment of 1850, making
the Judiciary elective. I need scarcely add,
that I entirely agree with you, gentlemen,
when you say that you do not regard the
office of a Judge "as a political office."
o say it is NOT FI ' ''POLITICAL office," is only to en unciate
El TRUISM, OS every One feels. It is a simple sell-evident
truth, which no process of reasoning could make more
plain. In the practical working of our political system,
POLITICAL PARTIES, organized to carry out in matters of
government, the measures which constitute their political
creed, find it necessary to select those as candidates for
that purpose who will represent their views. It is a neces
sary and proper qualification for a candidate, that be be
of and true to his party, and carry out its measures. This
is plain enough. But how it is, or can, or should be, A
QUALIFICATION FOR A JUDGE, who should know no man or
party—whose only business it is to hold the: scales of jus
tice with a steady baud, and unsuspected, between men of
all partial and creeds, jalitical or religious, and mete out
"equal and exact justice to all," TO De A rawrizaw--or that
he should be chosen upon party prine.plm, through cor
rupt party appliances. in heated and demoralizing politi
cal contests—is what common people are unable to compre
hend; what common sense intuitively rejects as absurd: and
what all judicious and reflecting minds, most deprecate.
Accordingly ; we find it to be the prevailing sentiment
of the masses, the common muse of the public, that Judi
cial officers should be kept aboveibe sphere of party poli.
tics; and no intelligent men, of any party, regards him
self, or regards any one else, in compromising his politi
cal prineiples,or his party status, by casting off all patty
trammels, and following out, in this most important exer
cise of the elective (much's°, his conscientious convictions
of duty. . .
These v ie ws are felt to have peculiar force applied tome ;
in view of my past record, and present attitude. Ten
years ago, when mere partizanism was for a time loot in a
higherg and holier sentiment, upon the written invitation
of the tuendrors of the Bar of the whole district, I was an
independent candidate. There was no other candidate,
and I was elected without opposition. It was a high and
more thou merited testintouial ; a compliment which I
shall remember, with grateful emotion, till my dying day ;
antlehall preserve the evidence of it, as the most valuable
relic I can leave to my children. Since then, though My
political sentiments have been unconcealed, and as well
known as these of any man in the district, I have not been
a POLITICIAN. I have felt it my duty to avoid personal at ,
gement on politics ; have attended or participated in no
delegate or other political meetings ; but have felt it my
duty to abstain entirely from mingling in the details of
partizan politics. To this, no doubt is tangly tribe asscrib-
eal that freed , n 1 front bias of suspicion of bias, which
believe has been universally accorded to me en the;
bench. To be a candidate now, upon any other tbo 11, 1
dependent grounds, I feel would be to come down froA.an,
elevation which I have hitherto occupied. .• ; „
I leave here, then, gentlemen, this subject, with the !
citizens of the District, whoare tho meet deeply interested
in i'. They will stake a choice, no denlit, in, entire
independence of thought and notion, as they .should do,

THE NEW YORK TRIBUNE FOR
Through straggle and suffering, at the cost
of multiform agonies, bereavements, devastations, the
America& Idea embodied in the preamble to our fathers'
Declaration of Independence approaches its complete re
alhation. The noble, inspiring assertion that "all men are
created equal," and endowed by their Creator with inalien
able rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, is
an longer a glittering generality, a poet's fancy, a philos
opher's speculation, bun the recognised base of our politi
cal fabric. The benign Revolution, which dates from the
Roston Massacre (41770, Ands its logical completion, just
one century later, in the XVth Amendraent, which gives
to the equal political and civil rights of every man born or
naturalised in our Republic the shield and defense of the
federal Constitution. The billows of Cute and Privilege
may roar and .age around that rock, and may transiently
seem ou the polo; of washing it away; but its foundations
are deep laid and steadfast, and the breakers of Reaction
and Slavery are hurled against and dash their spray over
tlavain. - _ _
Tiede not underrate the forces of Prejudice and Aristoc
racy. We do not forget that a very large minorty of the
American People still hold in their inmost hearts that
Blacks have no rights which Whites are bound to respect.
We fully appreciate the desperation wherewith all the war
ring elements of hatred to Republican achievement will be
combined and hurled against the battlements of Republi
can ascendency of 1872. We do not doubt that local suc
cesses, facilitated by Republican feuds and dissensions, will
inspire the charging host with a sanguine hope of victory,
such as nerved it to put forth its utmost strength in the
earlier stages of the COLIStes. of 1864 and 1768. Yet our
faith is clear and strong that the American People still
bless God that, on the red battle-fields of our late Civil
War, the Union was upheld And Slavery destroyed, and
will never CJl2sciously decide that theprecious blvd there
on poured out was lavished in vain.
Tel TRIBCNE believes in the prosecution of the great
struggle by legitimate means to beneficent ends. To State
Sovereignty, it opposes indissoluble National Integrity; to
Slavery for Blacks, Liberty for All; to Proscription, En
franchisement; to Popular Ignorance, Universal Ethics,
lion; to intensity and eternity of Wrathful Hate, universal
and invincible Good Will. It would fain do it utmost to
hasten the glad day when the South shall vie with the
North in exultation and gratitude over the disappearance
of the last trace or taint of that spirit which impelled Man
to exult in the ownership aid ehattelhood of his fellow Man.
Profoundly do we realized hoot the contest is not yet
ended—that Millions mourn, more or less publicly, the
downfall of the Slaveholders' Confederacy, and rear their
children to hate those by whose valor and constancy its
overthrow was achieved. If we ever seem to differ easels
, tMlly from other Republicans, our conviction that magna
nimity is never weakness, that vengeance is never politic,
and that devils arc not cast out by Beelzebub, must serve
to explain alleged eccentricities whose perfect vindication
we leave to Time and Reflection.
JOHN K. KEMP.
Tim Tam.ot has been, is, and most be, a zealous advo
cate of Protection to Home Industry. Regarding habitual
idleness as the greatest foe to human progress. the bane of
human happiness, we seek to win our countrymen In
masses from the ensnaring lures of Speculation, of Traffic,
and of always overcrowded Professions, to the tranquil
paths of Productive Industry. We would gladly deplete
our overcrowded cities, where thousands vainly j ostle and
crowd in misguided quest of "Something to Do to cover
prairies and plains with colonies absorbed in Agriculture,
Mechanics and Manufactures, and constantly projecting
into the blank, void wilderness the homes and the works
of civilized Man. Holding the Protection of Home Indus
try by discriminating duties on imported Wares and Fab
rics essential to the rapid, benelicient diffusion of Produc
tion in all its phases and departments, and so to the in
struction of our people inall the gainful arts of Peace, we
urge our countrymen to adhere to and uphold that policy
in undoubting faith that the true interest, not of a class or
a section, but of each section and every useful class, is
thereby stibserved and promoted.
Tn. Tannisni aims to be preeminently a Newspaper. Its
eorrespondents traverse every State, are present on every
important battle-Held, are early advised of every no able
Cabinet decision, observe the proceedings of Congress, of ;
Legislatures. and of Conventions, and report to as by tele
graph all that seems of general interest. We base paid
for one day's momentous advices from Europe by Cable
far more than our entire receiptss for the issue iu which
those advice, reached our readers. If lavish outlay, un
sleeping vigilance, and unbounded faith in the liberality
and discernment of the reading public, will enable us to
maka a journal which has no superior in the accuracy,
variety, and freshness of its contents. Tao Tnlnrna shall
be such a journal.
To Agriculture and the subservient arts, we have de
voted, and shall persistently devote, more means and
space than any of our rivals. We aim to make Tim
WEEKLY Tgiamis such a paper that no farmer can afford
to do without, however widely his politics may differ from
ours. Our reports of the Cattle, Horse, Produce and Gen
eral Markets, are so full and accurate, our essays in elucid
ation of the farmer's calling, and our regular reports of
the Farmers' Club and kindred gatherings, are so inter
esting, that tire poorest farmer will And therein a mine of
suggestion and counsel, of which he cannot remain igno
rant with positive and serious lees. We sell Tue WaaLLs
to Clubs for less than its value in dwellings for wastepa
per, and, though its subscription isalrearly very large, tee
believe that a Half Million more farmers will take it when
ever it shall be commended to their attention. We ask
our friends everywhere to aid us in so commending it.
